We Stay PRIDE
The LGBTIQ+ Employer Excellence Programme
PRIDE is not only once a year! With We Stay PRIDE | The LGBTIQ+ Employer Excellence Programme we support our members to live diversity beyond PRIDE month and to communicate this successfully internally & externally. LGBTIQ+ Diversity should be visible and practiced as an integral part of the corporate culture — every day.
Through consulting, exchange of experience and access to a network of LGBTIQ+ diversity-friendly companies, we provide our members with the appropriate tools to work for equal rights and a respectful working environment.
STICKS & STONES
The LGBTIQ+ Job & Career Fair & Platform
STICKS & STONES is Europe’s biggest LGBTIQ+ job and career fair. Every year, the fair takes place in Berlin (since 2009) and Munich (since 2016). It welcomes all job seekers who are gay, bi, and/or trans.
Unicorns in Tech Summit
The Unicorns in Tech Summit will take place on September 25, 2021, following in the footsteps of the successful Berlin LGBTIQ+ Tech Week. The Summit will bring together experts, amateurs, junior and senior-level talent, recruiters, job seekers, and anyone interested in the global LGBTIQ+ tech community for one day.
Unicorns in Tech offers companies the opportunity to support the Summit with a sponsorship. As a sponsor of the Unicorns in Tech Summit, companies will be highlighted in the event’s publicity and will have the opportunity to share their expertise, give presentations or participate in one of the scheduled panels on the day of the event.
The LGBTIQ+ Diversity Conference
Never before has LGBTIQ+ Diversity received so much attention and never before have companies and organisations found it equally difficult to keep track of the issue and strike the right note.
That’s why the UHLALA Group is organising #UNPINKED early next year as a unique, modern and future-oriented event of a different kind. New faces, role models and experts will inspire, discuss and present LGBTIQ+ Diversity, its current trends, challenges and solutions throughout the day. This way the participants will learn how to do LGBTIQ+ Diversity right and how better not to do it.

The LGBTIQ+ Diversity Get-Together
Our Pride Breakfast Club is an exclusive monthly event kicking off the first week of each month with a nice coffee, networking, and an inspirational talk.

The Global LGBTIQ+ Tech Community
The community is directed to everyone who feels at home in the tech world, works for a technology company, or is simply fascinated by the latest technological inventions or apps. Unicorns in Tech offers its members the opportunity to network and share ideas on the latest trends in a relaxed atmosphere.

The LGBTIQ+ Career Network for Lawyers
By becoming part of ALICE, students, trainees and professionals can inform themselves about LGBTIQ+ friendly employers, find LGBTIQ+ friendly jobs, get law-related news & insights, and connect with each other. Every two years, members, law firms, companies and activists meet at the ALICE Summit. Proud law firms present themselves there, speakers give talks on legal and LGBTIQ+ topics and the participants have the opportunity to get to know each other better while networking. The network is named after the Cameroonian lawyer and LGBTIQ+ human rights activist Alice Nkom.
The LGBTIQ+ Diversity Seal for Companies and Organisations
Companies and organisations that cultivate an open, inclusive and appreciative company/organisation culture that welcomes LGBTIQ+ employees can receive the seal “PRIDE Champion”.
Employers are required to take part in an audit focussed on LGBTIQ+ diversity management through which processes, requirements and company regulations are examined.
The LGBTIQ+ Diversity Audit
The comprehensive audit consists of various categories around LGBTIQ+ Diversity. Due to the holistic approach of the audit, all facets of a good and functioning LGBTIQ+ Diversity Management are examined. The detailed result of the audit reflects the current state of your LGBTIQ+ Diversity Management and thus serves to highlight existing potential and, if necessary, weaknesses. With the knowledge gained, you know exactly where you can effectively start to build up or deepen your LGBTIQ+ commitment. Whoever receives at least 60% of the points can have this certified with the PRIDE Champion employer seal.
The LGBTIQ+ Diversity Performance Index
How open and inclusive are German companies towards LGBTIQ+ employees? Who is succeeding in sustainably building structures for a culture of diversity and where is there still untapped potential?
On December 7, 2021, we will publish the PRIDE Index, the first LGBTIQ+ Diversity Performance Index (formerly the DAX30 LGBTIQ+ Diversity Index). Based on four categories and more than 75 questions, our index provides an overview of the LGBTIQ+ diversity commitment of German companies and thus shows who is a diversity champion and where real appreciation can be experienced. In order to do justice to the specific situation of small and medium-sized companies, these are presented in a separate index. Participation is free of charge for all companies.
Proudr LGBTIQ+ Campus Index
Which educational institutions in the DACH region are already implementing measures to promote an LGBTIQ+ inclusive campus culture? Where are LGBTIQ+ students and straight allies supported, valued, encouraged and optimally prepared for professional life? Where do the more than two hundred thousand high school graduates who are searching for the ideal university location and course of study for them and the 3,525,175 enrolled students receive information about the LGBTIQ+ commitment of the various educational institutions?
For the first time, we, the UHLALA Group, are offering all state-recognised institutions of higher education in Germany, Austria and Switzerland the opportunity to take a snapshot of the current state of their LGBTIQ+ diversity engagement. We will publish the results in our Proudr LGBTIQ+ Campus Index on 1 June 2021.
